Hello Winston and Sherwin,
Love, Peace and Pan. I am happy to be from Laventille, played with Desperadoes and is part of the band and Community.
I would rather that we converse privately. My number in Laventille is 316-9483, 624-9317 or E Mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Hey guys, I'd give Ian some slack. I know he's an old Despers man, and I'd bet he was a member of the band when this was played, so he's certainly entitled to criticize it.
You see, there we go again. So you know a little music and the very first thing you do is talk about mistakes, why not talk about the clarity which is so remarkable, but no, Mr Showoff can hear mistakes. So you see what Duvone Stewart was talking about?. Would a Jamaican go about knocking his countrymen for a little mistake?.
I listened to it again, Ian , and its still one of the best pieces I've heard. As a matter of fact I was struck by the clarity of the supporting pans.
But then, as they say, a true artist is never satisfied with his work!
Thanks for the comment, did you listen again?
I was focusing on weight, clarity and rhythm, that is why I did not state error(s)
Keep the tunes coming. I am enjoying the music from the National Instrument of T&T and the hot weather down here.
I have to listen again to hear the errors. Ian.
I'm sure they sound louder to the players like yourself :), but its still a great piece.
This album was recorded in Trinidad, but mixed in England. I wish "The Powers That Be" would have used another take for "Flight of the Bumble Bee." This is a short but difficult piece and Desperadoes have played it to perfection prior to and after this recording. However, because of a few miss-lines, I coined it, "flight of the bobbled bee" when I first heard this recording in 1981.
Great album, ODW. WE must be on the same wavelength :).
I was just about to post Despers classical version of "Bumble Bee"....one of the best I've heard.
Incidentally, this album was from 1980, the year after the famed steelband strike.
Kitchener's "No Pan" is also on this album.
